The Winter White.

Karlijn Veling. Don't really know where, how to start, and don't quite want to run the risk of writing nonsense. My inner craze may phaze out in a few days - as unloyal as it sounds, I've got hooked on loads of newcomers and got sick of them almost at once a bajillion times - or maybe not - and it's no wonder why I'd be inclined to pick the maybe not. Karlijn's got it all to hold (my) attention : a sharp gaze, a lithe frame, a cheeky edge, and yet an ability to go soft to top it off. Polyvalency, full of promises, one-to-watch... as many phrases that casually get thrown around, but - for want of better ones -that largely define arresting Dutchie ; not to mention editorial-ready, from the looks of it. When weighing the potential of a (soon-to-be) top-working model, the capability of delivering a variational and powerful print-work no matter who the photographer is is among the first factors to be considered ; Karlijn's editorial-work experience being still tenuous, you'll have to form an opinion basing upon her tests solely. Not necessarily the most accurate way to make up your mind on a newbie if you ask me, but still most persuasive a mean if the model's potential succeeds in piercing through all the adornments (airbrushing, cheap lighting effects and so on) added to the original photographs - and Miss Veling had no trouble doing so. Come to think of it, she ties in with the new generation of icy-looking girls a la Eileen Hydorn - as far away as one can get from oozing vulnerability as Siri Tollerod and her likes - that could get in great demand come Fall / Winter 2011. Stay tuned, I guess.
